Marni with the City of Boulder showing off their award.
Last night Boulder was given the Platinum Bicycle Friendly Community Award by the League of Amercian Cyclist. The City Manager, Mayor and other Cycling leaders of our community were present yet the crowd seem to be void of the largest cycling community in Boulder, Athletic cyclists. Where were they? No invitation, no desire, no knowledge? Something for a later Tuesday Coffee Talk is the continued absence of the athletic cycling community from core Boulder Cycling activities. What's going on there?

Boulder renewed as a Platinum Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists
Across the U.S., bicycling is on the rise - thanks in part to communities like Boulder taking steps to make riding easy, accessible and safe. Today, the League of American Bicyclists (LoAB) announced the latest round of Bicycle Friendly Communities (BFC) and renewed Boulder’s standing as a Platinum Bicycle Friendly Community. The Platinum award recognizes Boulder’s continued commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investments in education, infrastructure, policies and promotion.
“We are excited that Boulder recognizes that simple steps to make biking safe and comfortable pay huge dividends in civic, community and economic development,” said League President Andy Clarke. “Bicycling is more than a practical, cost-effective solution to many community challenges – it’s a way to make Boulder a place where people don’t just live and work, but thrive.”
